is now a must-have for events that want to be relevant.
Those not in the room would like to see or hear what's
going on. Please, no more meetings behind closed doors.
We are keen to work with innovative conference organizers
as they figure out how to develop live
streaming, collaborative notetaking, event wikis and
other new technologies. Bonus points for those who create
meaningful connections among visitors and locals beyond
the conference walls.
We ask conference organizers as well as speakers and participants
to let us know if events of interest offer live streaming
and W-Fi and to what degree there are parallel or fringe
events. Editors can add relevant links to the Planeta
Wiki and embed Twitter widgets, YouTube videos and other
social web extras.
Events that fail to engage those in and outside the room
are simply anachronistic.
Want free Wi-Fi
at your conference, hotel, university classroom or city
park? Ask for it.
Want accessible travel, responsible tourism, ecotourism,
indigenous tourism, local tourism? The logic remains the
same -- ask for it! The Planeta.com
Free Wi-Fi! asks for a thoughtful and creative use of
wired space with an invitation and challenge for tourism
pros to make the most of the technology.
